Blondes In Blue Dresses: Cate Blanchett vs. Kate Winslet

01/08/2007 at 12:57 PM ET

Two accomplished actresses, two Golden Globe nominees, two stunning blue dresses but two totally different styles — Cate Blanchett and Kate Winslet hooked up on the red carpet at the 18th Annual Palm Springs International Film Festival this weekend in coordinating cobalt stunners that showcased their individual looks. Always on the cutting edge of fashion, Blanchett arrived in a futuristic blue Balenciaga dress with sharp angles and patent leather insets. Winslet, on the other hand, went for simple elegance, wearing a figure-skimming Valentino gown with soft curls and minimal jewelry. We love that both actresses have such signature styles, but we can’t help but compare the two frocks. Tell us: Which dress do you like better? Cate’s futuristic sheath or Kate’s classic gown?

Actually, you really don’t get a clear picture of Cate’s dress in that pic. I saw it on TV and wow is it ever weird. So I’m retracking what I said earlier about it and no, it is terrible.

Both women look stunning and both dress styles seem to compliment the women wearing it!

I totally agree with Emily.
Both dresses attire the figure of each woman!

Cate B. recently took some bold decision in her outfits but somehow she always manages (at least in my opinion) to combine the style with some twist without going to the no-no side.Cate W dress is classy but too boring for my taste.But I agree that each dress complements the figure of the person that wears it.They are both stunning.

I adore Kate Winslet in the dress, she looks like she’s glowing,but I don’t really care for the dress on Cate Blachett. Bothe women are lovely and talented, but the tone of blue, and the way it’s cut on
her body, just isn’t working for me.
